DAMASCUS (Reuters)
- Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki met Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Saturday to discuss ways to stabilize Iraq and deepen ties between the two countries. "We discussed the Iraqi issue and the talks were good," Mottaki told reporters.

"They focused on the need to end occupation and achieve peace and stability. We also affirmed the needs for Iraqi citizens to determine the fate of their country and support the Iraqi government," he said.

President Bush on Wednesday warned Iran and Syria against stoking instability in Iraq and Lebanon.

James Baker, former secretary of state with close ties to the Bush family, is heading an Iraq Study Group that is considering options to give to Bush, including opening a dialogue with Iran and Syria. Bush has rejected that suggestion in the past. Mottaki is due to meet on Sunday with Palestinian group.

3. Actually, it's more in THEIR interest to "fix" Iraq

It's THEIR neighbor.

How would WE react if Mexico had "furriners" intervening, trying to make them "free" and to "help" them with their oil production?

Remember how we recated when Russia "helped" Cuba??

2. bush** sure is determined to be the only guy to go down in history
as saving the Iraqi people, and he's going to make sure he does is single-handedly. He's quite delusional that way, isn't he?

4. When Iran and Syria start working with Maliki to stabilize and improve Iraq...
...will this be Bush's worst nightmare? I think it would rank right up there.
